You won't regret visiting here even if you don't like prime rib, I've had other menu items and am always happy! Their raspberry long island is also a must have! Give it a try but make sure to have a driver with you. ;)

I was skeptical at first due to it being a “saloon” but the Blackened whitefish sandwich with homemade tartar was amazing!!! Great beer selection too!

Two couples stopped here for dinner on a recent trip to the area, having seen a coupon in a booklet from the hotel. People must know about this place because it was busy early on a Monday off season. And now I know why. Food...More

Our group had dinner there and enjoyed the tasty food and good service. The only thing that was a little surprising was the fact they had no fried foods....french fries..etc. It really wasn't missed. A nice meal and atmosphere.
